Hello from Warsaw. Today is a very important day in the history of this beautiful city. Every year, on August 1, Warsaw stands still for one full minute to commemorate the beginning of the Uprising in 1944, where 200,000 people lost their lives in a battle against the Nazis.

My nephew Jeremi worked as a volunteer to inform the public about the events that took place in this part of the city, in August 1944.
